12. READMISSION AND CONTINUANCE

 

Subject to the readmission regulations described in the following paragraphs, a student enrolled in a certificate or an advanced, technology, or technician diploma program, and registered as a full-time student, shall be permitted to continue to the next semester if he/she passes at least 50% of the courses for which a grade is awarded that semester. If he/she passes fewer than 50% of the courses for which a grade is awarded that semester he/she will be required to Withdraw (WD).

 

Students are required to maintain a cumulative average of 60% at the end of each semester of study.

 

A student who passes 50% of the courses for which a grade was awarded in a semester, but has one or more failures and has a cumulative average of at least 60% will be awarded a Clear Standing (GO) and will be readmitted to the following semester without conditions.

 

A student who was admitted to the semester with a Clear Standing (GO) or better but who earns a cumulative average of between 50% and 59.9% at the end of a semester, and has passed 50% of the courses for which a grade was awarded in the semester, will earn a Conditional (CR) standing and will be conditionally readmitted to the next semester. If, at the end of the next semester, the student again passes 50% of the courses for which a grade was awarded and earns a cumulative average of between 50% and 59.9%, the student will be required to Withdraw (R1) from the Marine Institute for a minimum of one full semester.

 

Students who have a cumulative average below 50% will be required to Withdraw (R1) for a minimum of one semester. Technical or summer semester sessions do not constitute a Semester.

 

With the exception of students admitted to the Marine Institute with an advanced standing of 10 credits or more, a student in his or her first semester at the Marine Institute will be readmitted to the second semester of study provided that he or she passes 50% of the courses for which a grade was awarded. First semester students who pass 50% of the courses who have a cumulative average of less than 60% will be readmitted to the next semester with an Academic Warning (AW).

 

A student who has been required to withdraw (R3) from the Marine Institute or any other public post-secondary institute, on a total of three (3) occasions will be academically dismissed. In this instance a student may be readmitted to the Marine Institute only in exceptional circumstances and only upon approval of an Admissions Committee.
